JERUSALEM – A man whose mother's funeral was delayed in Israel because of his alleged refusal to grant his wife a religious divorce, said the reports that he had changed his mind were "false news."

He introduced himself as Yisrael Meir Kin in an English-language film published on the Arutz Sheva religious news site. He appears in the movie with a tear in his shirt, as is traditionally worn in the Shiva week after the death of a close relative. He made a similar video in Hebrew to Israeli channel 13.

His mother's body arrived in Israel on Monday evening. A funeral was scheduled for Tuesday morning, but it took place only a few hours later, apparently until he agreed to grant or receive a religious divorce. Kin did not go to Israel for a funeral, apparently because he could have been arrested for refusing.

The rabbinical court of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada reportedly requested the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau to stop the burial until Kin agrees to the party and notes in a letter to the Chief Rabbinate that the man's mother supported him in his decision to leave his wife agunah or women chained. Lau announced on Tuesday that he would comply with his request.

Lau later said that the Kin family had filed a $ 20,000 bond to ensure that he would get money for his wife in a rabbinical court once it was established.

But Kin says in the movie that neither Lau nor anyone from the chief rabbinate contacted him, nor he and his family made a deposit to secure the money. He also noted that he was associated with Lau through marriage through his wife.

Lau had "an interest in committing this hideous crime against my mother," Kin accused.

He also said that he provided his wife at Beit Din Shaarey Mishpat, chaired by Rabbi Cwi Dow Abraham of Monsey, and who is not recognized by any rabbinical organization in North America or by the main rabbinate in Israel. The court is "widely condemned as extortion," reported a Jewish daily newspaper in Los Angeles in 2009.

The New York Times in 2014 reported that Kim demanded $ 500,000 and full care for their then 12-year-old son in exchange for divorce.

The chief rabbinate denied Kin's claims. "We regret that the breeder continues his dishonest behavior and is now attacking Beit Din (rabbinic court)," said Arutz 7, the office of the Chief Rabbi.
